Government II Series Flying-V
The iconic Flying V looked like a one-guitar revolution right from its release in 1958, so there’s no better platform on which to celebrate a moment in Gibson history that will live in infamy. Constructed using woods that were seized by the Feds, then returned once there was a resolution and the investigation ended, the Government Series II Flying V embodies a rock-on attitude, while being a powerful performer by any standards. The timelessly modernist Flying V design is dressed in a distinctive vintage-gloss Government Tan finish, with the Government Series II graphic on its black pickguard—a bald eagle hoisting a confiscated Gibson guitar neck—and black chrome hardware. A genuine piece of Gibson history comes in the form of a solid, one-piece rosewood fingerboard made from stocks returned after the resolution, and each guitar includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Gibson CEO Henry Juszkiewicz. And the Government Series II Flying V’s tone is far more than visual. With a pair of Dirty Fingers+ humbuckers, among Gibson’s hottest pickups ever, it’s primed to scorch stage and studio to get you heard.
